Pedro Bravo from Florida is accused of strangling friend Christian Aguilar in 2012 because of an obsession over his former girlfriend.

According to CBS Miami, state prosecutors showed court a screengrab from Bravo's phone, in which he apparently stated to Siri: "I need to hide my roommate."

According to the screengrab, the automated voice search system then responded: "What kind of place are you looking for?

Siri was shown to throw up the options: "Swamps. Reservoirs. Metal foundries. Dumps."

Defence lawyers said the screen grab was among many on Bravo's phone and added that the search may not have been carried out by their client.

Bravo is charged with drugging and strangling Aguilar in a Walmart carpark, before burying his body in remote wooded area 60 miles away. He denies the murder.
